Potash Mining

Jamie Kneen Communications and Outreach Coordinator responsible for: strategic research, social media, and public engagement; our Africa program, environmental assessment, and uranium mining.

Potash mining affects the air, land and water. Dust and exhaust gas are released into the air, while the leaching of toxic minerals and processing wastes may end up in the groundwater. Salt is a major waste product of potash mining.
